Windsor Castle

Today was the Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle, & the Marcos Owners Club were one of the clubs providing the backdrop to some very nice (& expensive!) cars displayed within the castle itself. Over 20 Marcos left thw hotel in convoy for the 10 minute drive to Windsor Great Park where we were marshalled on to the Long Walk to park up. There were over 30 Marcos including a Mantis owner, Berrisford, who I hadn’t met before with a lovely black Mantis. He only lived a few hundred yards away from the Castle (nice!) & had had the car about as long as me. I thought I knew all the Mantis owners but apparently not! Weather was cloudy with a bit of drizzle early on but unlike some I held my nerve & the hood stayed down!

Journey back to Cheshire in convoy with Andrew’s Mantis again was uneventful… Oh, apart from noticing low oil pressure & when I dipped it at the motorway petrol station… no oil! Having pinched all the spare ¬†oil Mr Peers was carrying with no affect on the dipstick I then had to purchase three 1L containers of 5/30W at over sixty quid! 😕 I will be hacked off if the oil leak is back again after it was fixed by Redline about three months ago. Got home in good time though having had a great Marcos-themed weekend which will be the last car event for me this year I think.
